Appellation: Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Contrôlée
ALOXE-CORTON is a little village, located in the northern part of the Côte de Beaune. The wines here benefit from east to south and southwest exposure. Soils are predominantly clay and limestone. Fourniéres is named for an ancient forge, whose large chimney near the village is still visible.
100% Pinot Noir
Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellar, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place for 20 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, one-third of which are new.
Very nice deep ruby red.
Light aromas of red fruit.
Rich and round in the mouth, with a long, finish and a well-balanced woody character.
